UNBELIEVABLY BAD':
Education Professor Disputes Article

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second of three articles describing
the reactions of education experts
to a proposal to withdraw incom-
petent students from the public
schools,)

By TED FRIEDMAN
Prof. Claude Eggertsen of the
education department took a dim
view of a suggestion in the cur-
rent Atlantic Monthly that the
schools remove their poorer stu-
dents.
Caspar Green charged in his ar-
ticle, "What Shall We Do with the
Dullards?" that "the school's cen-
tral function is academic training
. .. Those who do not learn (whe-
ther by inability or by disinclina-
tion) must not be allowed to pre-
vent the school from performing
its service to the community and
to- the students who can and wish
to benefit - - -
"Social- experience, vocational
training, particular skills . . . are

acquired on the job than in the
best equipped shop or commercial
course ever dreamed of."
Prof. Eggertsen replied that "his
idea of letting the children go into
the hands of industry is almost
unbelievably bad."
The professor of education said
this would permit unlimited ex-
ploitation of the children. He drew
a parallel between Green's pro-
posal and the child-rearing prac-
tices of ancient Sparta.
If the children did not meet
the standards, "they would ex-
pose them. They would bare them
out on a rock someplace and let
them die.
"To send them out. as incompe-
tents, to say, 'You are a failure,'
would be to stigmatize them, fore-
doom them to failure.
"This fellow seems to be con-
cerned with failure and promo-
Law .review
Appoints New
Editorial Staff
Editorial staff for the Michigan
Law Review has recently been ap-
pointed.
The faculty picks the editors
after they have completed try-out
work for the Review during their
junior years.
Whitmore Gray, '57L, has been
chosen Editor-in-Chief, while Ed-
ward C. Hanpeter, '57L, George
F. Lynch, '57L, David L. Nelson,
'57L, James M. Tobin, '57L and
Jerome K. Walsh '57L have been
named Associate Editors.
Other seniors are to be elected
in the fall.
The new editors will begin work
in September, '56 and will work
through the school year.

tion when what he ought to be
concerned with is growth. I think
maybe he has a business approach
to this matter. It looks as if he
to utilize it to those who vill
profit most from it.
"My answer to that is that there
is all the education to go around
that you could want."
Prof. Eggertsen declared that
he looks upon Green's solutionl
to the school problem in the same
way he views the question, "Shouldj
anybody be put in prison?"
"It should be used only as a last
resort and when -every other con-
ceivable means has been used up."
The education professor also re-
ferred to Green's "rigid concept
of what the school is."
The notion that the school is,
to teach academic subjects only
is not historically true, he said.
"He has a static institution in
a changing society.
"The modern educator says the
school must have some relation-
ship to the needs and ideas of the
learner," Prof. Eggertsen pointed
out.
Plant Classes,
Research Held
In Greenhouse
Room 1023 in the Natural Science
Building is a unique classroom.
Known as the greenhouse, 1023
is under the direction of Prof.
Felix Gustafson of the botany de-
partment. It is used for courses in
botany 1, for research and in an
elementary course in plant physi-
ology.
Recent research has dealt with
the problems of chemical absorb-
sion by leaves and ascorbic acid,
vitamin C, in the food supply of
plants.
The plant physiology class, com-
prised for the most part of seniors
and graduate students, studies i
problems such as the influence of
water on plant growth, respiration
of plants, and their mineral nutri-
tion.
Common plants, such as sun-
flowers, tomatoes, and soybeans
are obtained pre-grown from the
Botanic Gardens, 1404 Iriquois, for
use in various experiments.
The greenhouse, contrary to its
appearance, was built when the
Natural Science Building was con-
structed in 1915 by the University.
The glass, though usually effective
in protecting plants from the ele-
ments, has broken in severe hail-
storms.
The greenhouse functions all
year long, being used for summer
as well as winter session.
Group Holdsr
College Meet

Crackdown
On Drivers
Cons idered
LANSING (P)-State officials
today considered a drastic crack-
down on bad drivers, including
the possibility of suspending a
driver's license when he gets his
first ticket.
The plan was discussed at a
meeting of the state safety com-
mission, whose members agreed
they are shocked at the increase
in traffic deaths.
"I just can'tsexpress how de-
pressed I am over these figures,"
Governor G. Mennen Williams
'told the group.
He referred to a report that
highway fatalities for the first
three months of 1956 are 13 per
cent greater than the same period
in 1955, despite the state's new
speed law.
Under the plan discussed by the
commission today, motorists con-
victed for the first time of the
mst serious offenses would lose
their licenses for 30 days.
What offenses will be involved
must still be determined, but they
would probably be speeding, reek-
less driving and failure to yield
the right of way.
Secretary of State James M.
Hare said the system has cut down
traffic deaths 11 per cent in Con-
necticut.
Truman Chats
With Press
BeforeTrip
INDIANAPOLIS (P)-Harry S.
Truman, 72 Tuesday, came up with
this advice: "Have so much work
to do you don't have any chance
for devilment and then you will be
all right.
The former President passed
that word to reporters on the sta-
tion platform during a stop here
en route by train to New York
and a forthcoming European tour.
T r u m a n remarked smilingly
that since he was only 72 it was
too early to ask his formula for
long life. Asked how he felt on
his 72nd anniversary, he replied
with a question: "Well, how do I
look?" He looked fine.
The former chief executive was
ducking most political questions
but did say that the country is
going Democratic in 1956. As to
whom he will support at the Dem-
ocratic national convention, Tru-
man said he would let that be
known at the convention.
To a question as to whom the
Democrats would nominate, Tru-
man replied that he wished he
were a prophet and then he could
say. Askd wehat he thought of
Senator Stuart Symington (D-
Mo.), he grinned and said, "I like
the senator very well."
He mentioned positions to which
he had appointed Sen. Symington
in Washington. But he wasn't
saying how he liked Sen. Syming-
ton from the political point of
view in 1956.
Truman and Mrs. Truman were
greeted here by Frank McKinney,
Indianapolis banker and former
Democratic national chairman,
who offered going-away gifts.
imes Honorary

Mimes, the Union Opera honor-
ary, elected its officers for the

Tom Lewy, '58, was elected presi-
dent, Stuart Gordon, '58, became
vice-president, Chris Pyrros, '56-
BAd, was chosen secretary-treas-
urer, and Dick Booth, '57, was
